Congratulations to Cablefax’s 4th annual class of Overachievers Under 30, who were feted Wednesday afternoon in NYC. Colleagues, bosses and family members celebrated their achievements, which range from founding a successful experiential marketing agency to running complex financial transactions for a top US MSO to creating branded entertainment narratives for blue chip brands.

The honorees shared some of the best professional advice they’ve received, including some good counsel that even the industry veterans in the room took note of. Turner’s Jasmine Clennon, senior manager of ad innovation & programmatic solutions, cautioned against equating being busy with producing meaningful output. Mirrored Media founder/CEO Justin Lefkovitch reminded everyone that it’s important to stop and celebrate the little wins along the way. Along those lines, Nat Geo Wild communications manager Molly Mulrain advocated for stepping back and looking at the big picture. She recalled one moment when boss Jenn DeGuzman stopped her and said, “Molly, it’s PR not the ER.”

Congratulations to all of the 2017 Overachievers! Check out photos from the event in our Facebook album.
